    My question was "Isn't inverted interrobang simply the sequence
    U+00BF + U+00A1". I frankly don't care what interrobang is or isn't,
    and I don't think it is relevant here. Legacy is legacy, you have to
    look forward. Inverted interrobang is not simply the interrobang
    character inverted.
    Inverted interrobang is U+00BF + U+00A1 as far as I can tell, inverted
    question mark followed by inverted exclamation mark. You're answer
    "No" doesn't make it clear why not?
